Hello,

How many things to tell ! Having been in the Denali National Park with Chris (a friend who hosted me during my various stays in South Korea), we walked on the Denali Highway between Cantwell and Paxson with my very practical stroller. Despite a few rain showers, we were rather fortunate with the weather. Then we tried an expedition that we had given up making because of the rainy quantity of July and several uncertainties in some rivers, but a last information from somebody with whom I corresponded for several days motivated us again. But then after a huge first day in the pampas with some passages fighting with trees, we were made frights to the first glacier, then it was impossible to cross the river, Chris was nearly swept away, we had to sleep on the moraine not reassured. The next day the decision was firm, Chris wanted to turn back, although it was several months I was preparing this expedition I was not confident enough to urge him to continue. So I found a way to reach the road. It was beautiful with magnificent views of the mountains and glaciers, finally we were glad of our choice, even if I regret a  little that we did not pursue. We thus walked along the road, then along the pipeline, it was cool, this pipeline is grandiose. Arrived in Delta Junction, we hitchhiked to reach Fairbanks where we planned to take a shower, do laundry and rest a few days. But we met Sam in the campsite, who would leave on the next morning with his pickup to Deadhorse, at the end of the road in the Arctic Circle. I asked him if we could accompany him, in the end he was very satisfied not to make these 800km alone and so we were. We made the round trip in two and a half days it was top, we saw a grizzly bear, muskox and caribous, cracked the windshield, and plastered the pickup with at least 1cm of mud, what an adventure yo-hooo !

🙂

Here we are back to Fairbanks, our friend Tony of Healy is coming to join us and tomorrow we go to a hot spring to relax us finally!!!  Chris goes back to  Korea on 26 and I shall return alone with my stroller in Delta Junction to continue my journey towards Tok , Chicken and Canada ...

    Coucou Caroline ! Ah les bœufs musqués ! ça sent la testostérone !!
    Après avoir éliminé tous ses rivaux, le bœuf vainqueur n'est pas au bout de ses pén(i)s :
    il doit encore tenter environ 1300 approches (en 5 semaines) de toutes les femelles réceptives (quoiqu'un poil taquines, se débinant dès que monsieur parvient à monter ce qui le fait tomber, histoire de montrer qui qui décide ici 😉 ) pour ne finalement s'accoupler pour de bon que ... ben 5 fois au final 🙁
    Pfiou. Patient, le bœuf musqué. 🙂

    Salut Caroline!

    Super cool de voir que tu as fini par reussir a passer la Pacifique, meme si ca commence a dater maintenant!
    Par contre, on s'est vraiment loupe de peu en Alaska/Canada : j'y etais il y a 6-8 mois! Et je constate ca trop tard, t'es deja passee, plus possible de te donner des tuyaux maintenants... T'as meme ete a Lliard Hot Springs, tu loupes rien! (en meme temps la route doit etre tellement longue et monotomne, qu'il faut le vouloir de louper un truc si excitant qu'une hot spring! ^^)

    Bon courage vers le sud!
    Amities,
    Esteban
